Image is important

Last Update: April 22, 2017

Some of us show our images in our introductory avatars here. Also augmented imaging is often facilitated by a cuddly dog, cat or other object

Image is important! It's how we make that first impression!

Most visitors to any site will move on in less than 1 second, unless they are immediately engaged somehow, and that 'somehow' is very often some kind of image. I appreciate that you often point out the obvious, it's very good for us beginners. Best wishes for your continued success!

I prefer an image. It's definitely more personal. And makes a better impression.

Image is key and first impressions are made in a snap.

Exactly. Or what about "you're in good hands" with Allstate.

Good evening Mike,

You are right, I will change my photo to a more fun one.

Great Taetske. You are practicing image change. Love your new shirt and look. El gato Nuevo!

Good morning Mike,

Last year in May I toured the US for 3 weeks and in Ford Leavenworth, Michael bought this Gato for me. Now a real image change is difficult for a Taurus woman and that is why most people recognize me even after 30 years as I have maintained the same type of look with of course some more wrinkles.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

Your image is great Taetske and a Taurus has the ability to bull ahead and make changes!

URGENTE1 I have to put something straight less you think something funny.
Gato/me, we do not come from Ford Leavenworth, I am just told there is a big Federal prison, we are innocent.
We come from Leavenworth, without the ford, in Washington close to Seattle.

Saludos, Taetske

You I need an image vs picture - I dont like my picture myself - looking damn old I think. Need something fun and inviting maybe and I am not too happy about getting "up there".

Thanks for the perspective on how the same things can change and how important it is to remember where I have come from. Then and now.
